'From compute platforms and data archiving to modelling and simulation: an overview of Scientific Computing at STFC.'
This is the third seminar in the University of Manchester at Harwell Ideas Forum Imaging series. The aim of this series is to increase networking of academics and researchers across the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the National Laboratories. In doing so, we hope to link experienced users with new users to teach them about the University of Manchester and the Harwell National Facilities.
Dr Martyn Winn will present a survey of the activities of Scientific Computing, its role within the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and within the national and international research communities. The Scientific Computing Department (SCD) provides generic services for the research community, such as ICAT data archiving and the SCD Cloud, as well as domain-specific platforms, such as JASMIN and PSDS. Support for the large facilities on the Harwell Campus includes the development and deployment of data analysis algorithms. Members of SCD also research methods and applications in a wide variety of scientific domains, often supported by major software packages. Martyn leads the Computational Biology Group within SCD, and will provide some examples from his own group.
This seminar will be recorded and available to watch after the event.
A zoom link will be sent to attendees the day before the seminar.
